  2. Hello there

    no need to compare as others have said. It’s fantastic that you are seeing the red flags now instead of later. I hope you find a way to move on from him and find someone who truly treats you as he should. 
    Thanks for joining us and I’m glad you are finding support and healing through others’ posts. 

  3. Hi there. 

    Thanks for posting and saying hello. I’m sorry you are here for the reasons you are but it is good to meet you none the less. I’m new here too and I’m still trying to navigate the cite and figure out exactly what to read and write. I’m always nervous when I meet new people in person or online bc I tend to say stupid things and put my foot in my mouth. Hopefully I don’t do that here. 

    Im glad you found your way here and can find support and healing hopefully. 

  4. Hello and welcome. I am new here as well and I too have stayed silent all my life. My husband knows I was assaulted on multiple occasions but he doesn’t know the details because who wants to put that picture in their husbands mind ya know? 

    anyways. It took me a while to get a good therapist and it was a rough wait time, but I’m glad I waited it out and got to speak to someone who I could pour my heart out to. Someone who couldn’t run and tell someone else and someone who was on my side. 

    I hope you find these things in your therapist as well and again welcome. 

  5. Hello all. 
    I’m unsure about posting here and I don’t know what to say. I have been holding a lot of feelings in for what feels like my entire life. I know I can’t and shouldn’t share my story here. But I do want to say this has been a long time coming. I have been dealing with childhood trauma for around 26 years as I am now 31 years old. I have also been dealing with trauma from r*** for 13 years. I have told my therapist about it in the past but I have recently had to get a new therapist and I have yet to tell her because I don’t feel comfortable yet. It’s a huge thing to trust someone with. 

    Anyways. That’s why I wanted to join this cite. I wanted to be able to share my story with people who not only listen and empathize but who can understand my pain on some level. I hate that anyone can understand my pain, but it is nice not to be alone actually. 

    That is my short version of my story and I don’t know if that was too much to say at first. I’m sorry if it was and this post gets moved. I wasn’t sure how much was too much to share. 

    thanks for reading and being here for me
